Just in time for parents to start planning their children’s summers, Camps Rock has returned as Dayton’s only fully searchable summer camp directory website. Camps Rock is an online directory of summer camps, where parents can search to find awesome summer camp options for their kids. With over 600 camps currently listed, and more being added each day, Camps Rock is the most comprehensive directory of Summer Camps to exist in Dayton. The free online directory allows parents to search by age, interest, or distance to quickly find and compare program options.
Dayton mom and Camps Rock creator, Anne Potter, says, “There is simply no other resource out there like this one. This idea came out of my own frustration with trying to find good summer camps for my three kids. It is simply overwhelming. It is challenging enough trying to find options on the internet, but once you find an interesting camp, you then have to dig through the website to find all of the key info you need… what is the price? What ages? What are the start and end times? And do they offer extended hours for working parents? These are just some of the questions parents have to answer. It’s almost impossible to organize this information, and see all of your options.
“I really just wanted to create a tool, a directory, that would be so useful for parents that they didn’t need anything else to plan their summers. It’s all there: straightforward, organized, and consistent for every camp listed. It’s free for parents to use the service, but it’s also free for the camps to be listed. Camps can choose to upgrade their listing, but it was important to me that the data be complete and useful, so there had to be a free option for everyone.”
Camps Rock is more useful than any other camp list you might find because the directory is searchable, and you can also save camps into a Favorites List. You can search by topic, age range, date range, location, and keywords. Using these search mechanisms, filter down from all of the available camps to the ones that are most fitting for your own family’s needs.
Once you find a camp that’s perfect, add it to your Favorites List so you can get to it instantly. Save several camps into your Favorites, and then have your child look through and pick out the ones that are most interesting to them. This lets your child take ownership of the process of planning their summer, and you’ll know that whatever you’ve chosen, they are definitely going to look forward to camp week.
Around 20,000 families in the Dayton area will have a child in at least one camp this summer. Camps Rock is the place families can turn to for help in finding the perfect summer camps for their kids.
